360 HD-DVD? Maybe Not.

Ars Technica does the fact-checking on the rumors that Microsoft is definately installing Toshiba's HD-DVD post 360 launch, and finds the facts insubstantial. Now if only Slashdot would bother with such fact checking, some of us could stop wasting our time pondering about it.

Like Ken, I think HD-DVD is still somewhat likely for MS, but it could be done in a number of ways, and rumor-mongering is probably not embedded technology for the console. For the record, I think it would be best for the consumer to just have the 360 go with Blu Ray and save us a lot of trouble. But Microsoft doesn't always do what's best for the consumer.
